After a hard day examining and dissecting worms, why not put your feet up and snack on a few? Here is a really cute idea that can be used to celebrate Earth Day or to accent a thematic learning experience. Kids use clay pots, gummy worms, cookies, and pudding to create tiny worm habitats that you can eat. The recipe can also be used to expose children to sequential thinking or procedural texts.
